Storyline

Ana is alive and married with Antonio; they arrive in the manor in the countryside of Spain where she worked as a nanny many years ago, for the centennial birthday of the matriarch. In their reunion, she finds that Jose died three years ago; Juan left his wife Luchy; Fernando is still living with his mother and unsuccessfully trying to fly a hang glider; and the three little girls are grown-up. Further, she discovers that the dysfunctional family is completely broken, and Luchy in embezzling mother's money. When Juan arrives for the celebration, he plots with Fernando and Luchy to kill the mother to get the inheritance. Meanwhile, Antonio has a brief affair with Natalia. Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Grandma is 100 years old
28 September 2004 | by (Finland) – See all my reviews

This is one hilarious film. I remember watching it over and over again on our VCR when I was about 12 years old. I recall being fascinated with this fantastic family, which was nothing like our bleak, Scandinavian existence! I saw it about 10 times...

It's about the grandma's centennial birthday, which gathers together all the family, with their marital and family problems. Some have schemes and plots to embezzle the family's money. The themes also deal with generation-gap and cultural environment in Franco's Spain. However, the Grandma is larger-than-life figure, almost akin to the creations of magical realism. She's able to have, for example, a telepathic connection with her granddaughter. Her son Federico is a "mad scientist" and a dreamer.

The whole film is set in the country house and it's surroundings. All the characters are colourful and rich, funny and tragical. The actress playing the Grand old lady does a terrific job!! Besides, the film is well shot, and the music echoes richly in memories of the persons.
